New EMUI version:

According to the changelog, Huawei Nova 7i smartphone users can upgrade their devices to EMUI 10.0 version from EMUI (C636E1R3P2). However, the EMUI version and package size may vary in different markets.

What’s new with June 2021 security patch:

This security update fixes different levels of exploits and issues including 2 critical, and 13 high levels of CVEs for improved system security.

HarmonyOS 2.0 status for Huawei Nova 7i:

Huawei Nova 6 SE is the Chinese version of the Nova 7i smartphone, which already secured its place in the HarmonyOS 2 beta testing program. It clearly means that Huawei Nova 7i is also compatible to run on HarmonyOS.

On the other hand, Huawei has not made any other official HarmonyOS 2.0 plan for global users. Yet, we remain optimistic about the launch.

Key points for users before Update:

  • The device must have a better battery backup to install this update that is a minimum of 50%.
